After a tooth extraction (tooth removal), it is important to closely follow aftercare instructions to reduce problems that can happen after the procedure. It is not unusual to experience discomfort after tooth removal.
As long as discomfort is getting better each day, your child should be on the right track to recovery. With these precautions in mind, your child will be just fine.
When a tooth is removed, a blood clot will form where the tooth used to be. After this happens, it is important not to disturb the clot or dry socket could form.
These precautions after a tooth removal help ensure proper healing while keeping the blood clot in place.
